Jalen Rose on Chris Webber: 'Fortunately, I wasn’t the one who called the timeout'


Former NBA player Jalen Rose doesn’t exactly have the best relationship with his one time college teammate, Chris Webber. Rose, currently an analyst for ESPN is known to be a bit outspoken and has unleashed some verbal barbs at C-Webb in the past, something that continued recently in a topic that was started in regards to Kevin Durant.

Rose was discussing Durant’s recent interview where he all but suggested he was haunted with the idea of winning an NBA title, where Rose began to talk about just how difficult it is to win a title at any level, be it high school, college or NBA.

Of course, Rose, Webber and the Michigan Wolverines came incredibly close to winning such a title in 1993, though, an inexplicable timeout requested by Webber (which the team did not have) all but ended those dreams.

Clearly, Rose has not gotten over that as insinuated by his comments:

Fortunately, I wasn’t the one who called the timeout“

Guess there won’t be any Christmas cards exchanged between the two this year.
